NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/29/12 -- Plummeting natural gas prices and pressure to reduce emissions have made natural gas a viable option as an alternative fuel. Roughly 70 percent of our oil consumption is from gasoline. "This abundance of natural gas is something we weren't expecting as a country, but it's here now, and it's a gift we should take advantage of," says Steven Mueller, chief executive of Southwestern Energy Co. "There's huge savings here and a way to help to environment."
